New shielded sprayer
WIDENING your crop rows to facilitate shielded spraying is a thing of the
past with the release of the Crop Stalker high-accuracy shielded sprayer.
Taking precision farming to a new level, it accurately targets weeds with
lower cost, non-selective herbicides in conventional row spacings as narrow as 30 centimetres.
Manufactured by Southern Precision Pty Ltd, an independent retailer at Naracoorte, the shielded sprayer is
fitted with a Garford Robocrop side-shift mechanism, which provides a powerful and multi-purpose tool for
controlling troublesome weeds in tricky situations.
Key components were developed with Wool Bay farmer Peter Farrow, who after building his own shielded
sprayer has been successfully spraying between his 30cm crop rows for a number of seasons.

CUSTOM Cartons is a 100 per cent family-owned private company
established in 1984 to service the growing demand for small run
cartons in South Australia. But the company's ability to create
packaging solutions resulted in its rapid growth and by 1994, Custom Cartons was a well-established
provider of corrugated and packaging products. Since that time, Custom Cartons has confidently grown to
meet all the packaging and carton needs of a wide variety of clients within Australia and overseas. Custom
Cartons has always maintained a commitment to using the latest technology to improve its product range.
The company's packaging equipment includes some of the most advanced in the industry. This is evident
with the recent purchase of a 4 Colour Flexo Folder Gluer and a 6 Colour in line UV Heidelberg XL105.

Leaders of all ages
AFFCO has identified that it is not only the young of age capable of learning
leadership skills and has now expanded its successful 2010 Young Leaders
Retreat model to incorporate a young leaders course for ages 20 to 30, plus a
Graduate and Seniors Leaders course for ages 30-plus and for 2010
graduates of the program. "One of the successful outcomes of the 2010 model was the networking that took
place with the group and the strong friendships formed that are still thriving today." acting General Manager
of AFFCO and coordinator of the event Sally Piper said. "It is this networking with likeminded, dynamic and
enthusiastic individuals that can culminate in bringing about change and new directions in the industry and
is something to be encouraged, especially in today's competitive market." A unique drawcard of the AFFCO
Leadership Retreat is its focus on leadership in the horticultural industry together with its short timeframe,
which allows for those busy participants who cannot afford to take more than three days out of their
schedule in a given week.
The AFFCO Leadership Retreat will take place in Lancefield, Victoria from May 25 to 27.
